    Pros

    Laid back place to work for the most part and the pay is average for what you do. Free ice and coffee in the break areas.

    Cons

    Too many managers. Need more recognition and incentive to some of its dedicated employees. Rotating shift schedule for production workers.

    Pros

    This company seemed to really take care of their employees in everyway. It was great working for the North American HQ because of the flat management structure and great employee benefits.

    Cons

    The department I was working for was still developing, and it showed. Training was not fully thought out and the department did not function as well as it could have.
